I am very sorry to hear about this. Please tell me what evidence do you have that says that this is environmental? And, do you know which company is responsible?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
No evidence, other than amazing coincedance. I beleive the first step is to demand testing in case other child or adults are at risk. My question to you is what to do to protect any right that we may have.

Thank you. While there are certainty very strong laws state and federal when it comes to holding companies responsible for environment damage, the problem is that you do not have any proof of the cause and the source. What I would do is to have a special company (and they do exist) test the whole environment around the home and nearby. If carcinogens are found that are known to cause that same cancer, and especially if other children/adults nearby have the same illness, then once the carcinogens are traced to the manufacturer, the manufacturer can be sued.

I hope this helps and clarifies. Please use the SEND or REPLY button to keep chatting, or please RATE when finished. You may always ask follow ups at no charge after rating. Kindly rate my answer as one of TOP THREE FACES/STARS and then SUBMIT, as this is how experts get credit for our time. Rating my answer the bottom two faces/stars (or failing to submit the rating) does not give me credit and reflects poorly on me, even if my answer is correct. I work very hard to formulate an informative and honest answer for you; please reciprocate my good faith with a positive rating.
